I am completely baffled by the way we as African Americans are starting to think…I seriously just don’t understand exactly what we value anymore. I say WE because whether we like it or not, we are all a representation of each other. If you don’t believe me, think about it… If someone walks into a building and decides to act a fool, and I go into that same building 10 minutes later with a classy and demure attitude, how do you think I will be looked at? Let’s just say I will definitely have to work twice as hard to make a good impression. So my question is WHY people Why?
The reason for my seemingly harsh rant just comes from buildup frustrations. And I honestly think that this weekend topped it off. On Saturday I went to see Red Tails with my father, and to my surprise, it was a mixed audience, which I must say was very pleasant to see. But what I could not understand was why did this movie only make 19.1 million dollars this weekend? Yes, that was a higher opener than expected but my questions are still why? if it had been any other RETARDED movie, which I will digress from naming, I am so sure It would have made so much more money and there definitely would have been more black faces.
What is even sadder is that majority of the African Americans that were in the theater were older people…What happened to my young adults? Every day we want to say that oh we are not treated fairly….oh racism exists.Then there is a BLACK Film made with an ALL BLACK CAST depicting true BLACK HEROES and I barely see the young African American support!!! You would think that the history of so many sacrifices shown on screen, would be more appreciated. But had it been some SUPER SIZE PLUS BUFFOON character we would have all been there to support and quoting lines on our facebook, twitter, and every other social network. I’m
sorry people, but we got’s to do better!!!! Here is a line you can quote!!!! ” WE FIGHT!”
Did anyone go to the theaters this weekend? tell me what you think?
